About the Museum



The Margaret R. Grundy Memorial Museum brings to life the legacy of the Grundy family and the times in which they lived, through the preservation and interpretation of their belongings and late Victorian home situated on the banks of the Delaware River in historic Bristol Borough.


The Grundy Foundation, created in 1961 by the Last Will and Testament of Senator Joseph R. Grundy, maintains and operates the Senator's familial home as a late Victorian-era museum; maintains and operates a community library; and, makes charitable contributions to nonprofit organizations, with a particular interest to those in Bristol Borough. Senator Grundy, a philanthropist with a solid commitment to his hometown, wanted to preserve the history and ensure the ongoing well-being of the residents of Bristol Borough and its surroundings in Bucks County.


The Museum and the Library, each named in honor of the Senator's sister, Margaret, operate in support of the Grundys' values: love of their hometown, civic participation, devotion to family, respect for hard work, and commitment to education.
